You're right. I've noticed you don't advertise your rank and I respect that. Doing that comes across as an appeal to authority argument (i.e., you must submit to my argument because I'm a Major and a doctor therefore I know more than you). IMO, that indicates insecurity. I suspect there are several people in this forum with graduate degrees but they don't advertise it in their screen names.
